Living in Wales
Wales might be a small nation in comparison to its larger neighbours in England, Scotland and Ireland but it more than compensates with breathtaking landscapes and coastal beauty. Wales' mountains, hills and rivers offer ample opportunity to escape the bustle of university life, whilst cities such as Cardiff mean big city thrills are not far away. There are also six UNESCO world heritage sites in Wales.
Wales also enjoys some of the lowest living costs in the UK, which means spending less on accommodation, travel and food.
